How did you reschedule? When I click the reschedule link and type in my code, it says I can't reschedule because my sitting was cancelled. When I try to schedule a new sitting instead of rescheduling I get timed out.

I was able to just type my code HERE. Then I hit reschedule. The whole system is a mess so I've got no suggestions...

I was told if your original code doesn't work, you can contact the SOA for a new one. Also, I was able to confirm my appointment on Prometric's website without any trouble at 1AM. Maybe it was an issue of traffic.

I guess when I do practice exams under "exam conditions" I will wear a mask now. It sounds so uncomfortable... I'm curious how all of the security protocols may change. When they reset your calculator, will they actually touch it? Will they make us reset our own in front of them? Will they inspect our masks? Will they handle our IDs? Will they make us wipe down the lockers after we're done? So many questions...

Welp, I guess I don't have to worry about sitting in a mask anymore, because Prometric just canceled my recently confirmed appointment and I can't find a test center with any sittings available now even in different states.

Anyone else in the Northeast having no luck finding an open testing center with appointments available?

This situation has been really stressful and I'm not sure if I should keep studying and hope I find an appointment within the next couple of days or cut my losses and just take the exam in September.

Hey! I'm also trying to take in the northeast. I live in Boston and had my appt. cancelled by prometric. When I was rescheduling, the closest I could find was 100 mi away in Portland, ME. I took that spot because I don't want to wait 4 more months to take this. However, it really does not seem like the best measure to prevent the spread of this disease for me to be traveling between states right now. I really think this sitting should have been cancelled and a summer offering given for CBT's like with the written exams.

If you feel almost ready for this test, I would say continue checking for any open seat and take it. If you feel like you would have to cram over the next week or so to feel ready for this, I think the added stress of not having an appt would be way too much.

I'm sitting in September. Good luck to all who manage to take it this sitting.

This was exactly me for the last sitting. I do worry a bit that I've memorized a decent amount of Adapt's questions rather than fully learned their underlying concepts however...
